Ah, ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, singing and crying
Valhalla, I am coming!
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
Ah, ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore
Of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins
For peace and trust can win the day
Despite of all your losing

Friends

Bright light almost blinding
Black night still there shining
I can't stop keep on climbing
Looking for what I knew.
Had a friend she once told me
"You got love you ain't lonely "

Now she's gone and left me only
Looking for what I knew.
Mmm I'm telling you now
The greatest thing you ever can do now
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now
It's very easy just.

Met a man on the roadside crying,
Without a friend, there's no denying,
You're incomplete, they'll be no finding
Looking for what you knew.
So anytime somebody needs you,
Don't let them down, although' it grieves you,

Some day you'll need someone like they do,
Looking for what you knew.
Mmm, I'm telling you now,
The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now,
It's very easy just...ooh, yeah

Celebration Day

length: 3:29
producer: Jimmy Page
mixer: Andy Johns
writer: Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page
Her face is cracked from smiling
All the fears that she's been hiding
And it seems pretty soon ev'rybody's gonna know.
And her voice is sore from shouting
Cheering winners who are losing
And she worries if their days are few
And soon they'll have to go.

My my my I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration
We are in the promised land.

She hears them talk of new ways
To protect the home she lives in,
Then she wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door.
Her name is brown or white or black,
You know her very well,
You hear her cries of mercy
As the winners toll the bell.

My my my I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration
We are in the promised land.

There is a train that leaves the station
Heading for your destination,
But the price you pay to nowhere has increased a dollar more.
Yes, it has!
And if you walk you're gonna get there
Tho' it takes a little longer,
And when you see it in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan

But baby since I've been loving you, yeah
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh yeah

Ev'rybody trying to tell me
That you didn't mean me no good
I've been trying, lord, let me tell you
Let me tell you I really did the best I could
I've been working from seven to eleven ev'ry night
I said it kinda makes my life a drag
Lord, that ain't right, no no
Since I've been loving you

Said I've been crying
My tears they fell like rain
Don't you hear

Said I been cryin, yeah
Oh my tears they felt like rain
Don't you hear them falling?

Do you remember, mama, when I knocked upon your door?
I said you had the nerve to tell me
You didn't want me no more, yeah
I open my front door, hear my back door slam
You must have one of them new fangled
New fangled back door man
I've been working from seven, seven, seven
To eleven ev'ry night

Out on the Tiles

length: 4:04
producer: Jimmy Page
mixer: Andy Johns
engineer: Andy Johns
writer: John Bonham, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page
As I walk down the highway all I do is sing this song
And a train that´s passin´ my way helps the rhythm move along
There is no doubt about the words are clear
The voice is strong, is oh so strong

I´m just a simple guy, I live from day to day
A ray of sunshine melts my frown and blows my blues away
There´s nothing more that I can say but on a day like today
I pass the time away and walk a quiet mile with you

[Chorus:]
All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
Oooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, oh yeah

I´m so glad I´m living and gonna tell the world I am
I got me a fine woman and she says that I´m her man
One thing that I know for sure gonna give her all the loving
Like nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody can

Standing in the noonday sun trying to flag a ride
People go and people come, see my rider right by my side
It´s a total disgrace, they set the pace, it must be a race
And the best thing I can do is run

[Chorus:]

Hangman hangman hold it a little while
Think I see my friends coming
Riding a many mile.
Friends did you get some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me my dear friends
To keep me from the Gallows Pole?
What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?
I couldn't get no silver I couldn't get no gold
You know that we're too damn poor
To keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
I think I see my brother coming,
Riding a many mile.
Brother, did you get me some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my brother,
To keep me from the Gallows Pole?
Brother, I brought you some silver,
I brought a little gold,
I brought a little of ev'ry thing
To keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Yes, I brought you to keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile,
I think I see my sister coming,
Riding a many mile, mile, mile.
Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand,
Take him to some shady bower,
Save me from the wrath of this man,
Please take him,
Save me from the wrath of this man, man.
Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile,
Pray tell me that I'm free to ride,
Ride for many mile, mile, mile.
Oh, yes, you got a fine sister,
She warmed my blood from cold,
Brought my blood to boiling hot
To keep you from the Gallows Pole,
Your brother brought me silver,
Your sister warmed my soul,
But now I laugh and pull so hard
And see you swinging on the Gallows Pole
Keep-a-swingin'!
Swingin' on the gallows pole!

Tangerine

length: 3:10
composer: Jimmy Page
lyricist: Jimmy Page
Measuring a summer's day
I only finds it slips away to grey
The hours they bring me pain.

[Chorus:]
Tangerine tangerine
Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love she was my queen
And now a thousand years between.

Thinking how it used to be
Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again?
And I do.

That’s the Way

I don't know how I'm gonna tell you
I can't play with you no more
I don't know how I'm gonna do what mama told me
My friend the boy next door.
I can't believe what people saying
You're gonna let your hair hang down
I'm satisfied to sit here working all day long
You're in the darker side of town.
And when I'm out I see you walking
Why don't your eyes see me
Could it be you've found another game to play,
What did mama say to me.

That's the way,
Oh, that's the way it ought to be,
Yeah, yeah, mama say
That's the way it ought to stay.

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river,
And weren't those tears that filled your eyes,
And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying,
Had they got you hypnotized?
And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers,
But all that lives is born to die.
And so I say to you that nothing really matters,
And all you do is stand and cry.
I don't know what to say about it,
When all you ears have turned away,
But now's the time to look and look again at what you see,
Is that the way it ought to stay?
That's the way
That's the way it oughtta be
Oh don't you know now
Mama said.. that's the way it's gonna stay, yeah
